WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT PRACTICING MEDICINE?

In plastic surgery I love the artistry side of the specialty. On some level it is a skill that is so basic and I believe that no matter how far technology advances it will probably never be replaceable.

DEFINING MOMENTS

During my plastic surgery fellowship I performed an extensive facial trauma reconstruction on a woman and during one of her follow up visits her entire extended family came and presented me with an engraved gift that I have on my desk to this day. It reminds me of how blessed I am to be able to care for my fellow humans in such an intense and intimate way.

NEWEST, LATEST AND GREATEST

It’s interesting because in my field there has been a recent shift in patient interest from non-surgical technology driven treatments back toward surgery. I think patients are often disappointed with the minimal results they are seeing from non-surgical techniques. My happiest patients are those that we perform procedures for such as the extended deep plane facelift, a complex surgical technique that very few plastic surgeons in this country perform. The results are incredibly transformative and at the same time extremely natural.

“I AM THE KIND OF DOCTOR WHO ALWAYS…”

Changes. I am constantly evaluating and changing how we care for patients in our practice, in every way from basic customer service to surgical techniques in order to provide the highest level of care we can. Sometimes it drives my staff crazy and they often joke that I am ‘evolving’ again!
